"As I sit here today" swallowing the bits of vomit

...that keep showing up in my mouth I want to put the obvious into words: the hearings are exposing the squirmiest and slimiest of the underside of a useless beholden corrupt human being.
Also brutal, callous, and hard hearted, disgusting and unworthy.

On the flip side I am riveted by most of the house members who as questioners have caught on. They are not allowing the acting AG worm his way into stealing their time and they show him up for the unco-operative blob he is.

In the last week I have had a little recurrence of a formerly felt relieving feeling creep back into my consciousness. I had not experienced it since Obama took over for Bush 2.
Watching some Democratic Members of the legislative branch swing into action and hearing their determination for investigations and oversight started and expressed I am feeling a bit of permission to slowly exhale. Maybe they’ve got this.

History proves what is hard to imagine in our perilous time. We can believe that this, too, shall pass.
Vigilance.

2. We always knew why this idiot gorilla was installed

He's a Donnie Dump consigliere. And you can bet your ass he tells Ancient Orange everything he finds out in the department.

5. I started relaxing my anxiety muscles

with the blue wave. That, all by itself, stopped the careening rush to Fascism in its tracks. Nancy Pelosi helped and today, seeing the Democrats’ determination to go after the fascists has relaxed me more.

It’s just a matter of time now.

6. All day, Whittaker has reminded me of

Nixon's John Erlichman. He has that same thuggish look and demeanor.

As much as we all had that visceral reaction to Erlichman, I am told that Haldeman was the real SOB of the pair.

7. Good review.

I was particularly impressed with 1) the number of women on the panel, which you would seldom see if see on a Republican led committee and 2) their veracity in questioning. They were pit bulls, and I was happy to witness their resolute in questioning a worm who tried his best to spit a loogie (sp?) in the face of the committee.

8. None of the attempts at the customary intimidation

of men over women worked with any of our Amazons. NO matter how imposing/threatening bald muscle man might have looked.
To me he just looked like an overstuffed refrigerator.
